I had a lot of drama trying to get a similar thing working with
sysinstall a while ago and never got it the way I wanted. Have you
considered partitioning the disk manually with fdisk & bsdlabel and
installing the freebsd distributions using the install.sh scripts
provided on the freebsd install cd's (e.g. DESTDIR=/mnt ./install.sh)?
I think this would be easier to script in sh rather than fight with
I've read an article that tells you how to install freebsd on a usb
stick using this technique, and I don't see a reason why this cannot be
done with a normal disk.
Hope this helps,
